The article presented the experiences and results of the pedagogical model developed in the project “Partilhar: Comunicação, Informação e Computação para compartilhamento da cidadania”, translated as Sharing: Communication, Information and Computing to share citizenship. The research involved four institutions: the University of Brasilia (UnB), the IESB University Center, the João Mangabeira Foundation (FJM) and the Paranoá Culture and Development Center (Cedep), all located in Brasília, capital of Brazil. The cross-cutting theme was Public Transparency - forms of monitoring, use and application of public resources. In the first stage, pedagogical materials were produced and test-workshops were applied focusing on the training of Communication and Information competences in social networks using mobile technologies. The second part consisted on the application of the workshop plan and evaluation of its results and was not yet finalized. The objective was to inform people to use social media in a network from a citizen perspective, guiding participants to learn how they can autonomously acquire the skills and abilities necessary for the practical appropriation of the mechanisms provided by the Brazilian Transparency Law. This “teaching to learn” also proposed that learners become multipliers of knowledge, always shareable and permanently elaborated/reworked by the collective. It was based on the premise that the main obstacles to inclusion need to be overcome in an articulated way: information poverty, digital exclusion, censorship, the political use of technology, misinformation, manipulation of the media and destruction of public information.
